Personal Injury Lawyers in West Memphis, Arkansas

West Memphis sits in Crittenden County, nestled into Arkansas’ eastern corner. The Mississippi River forms a natural state border and transportation corridor. Barge and rail traffic move goods through the city. Several major highways also converge near West Memphis, including Interstate 40, Interstate 55, and U.S. Highway 70.

This transportation nexus fuels economic activity in West Memphis. However, concentrated travel corridors also increase accident risks for trucks, trains, barges, and passenger vehicles. West Memphis’s population has grown to approximately 24,000 residents in recent years. More people means more drivers and congestion on local roads.

Pursuing Compensation for West Memphis Accident Victims

Article 5, Section 32 of the Arkansas Constitution prohibits damage caps in personal injury claims. This means there is normally no limit to the amount of compensation you may receive after being injured at little to no fault of your own within the state. People injured in accidents usually seek both economic damages and non-economic damages.  

Economic Damages

These cover tangible financial costs associated with an accident, such as:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Lowered earning capacity 
  • Property damage

Non-Economic Damages

You can also receive compensation for the non-financial impact your accident has on your life, including:

  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life 
  • Scarring, amputation, or deformation
  • Loss of consortium

Arkansas Accident Liability Laws

Arkansas follows the doctrine of “modified comparative negligence” when determining accident fault and damages. This means victims can secure compensation if they were less than 50 percent responsible for causing the accident. 

However, the damages awarded are reduced by their percentage of fault. For example, if you incurred $100,000 in damages, but the jury found you to be 49 percent at fault, you would be awarded $51,000. If you were found to be 50 percent at fault, you would not receive any damages. 

Who Is Liable in a Personal Injury Case in West Memphis?

To recover compensation in a personal injury lawsuit, you must prove liability by a preponderance of the evidence. Among others, liable parties may include:

  • Businesses and corporations 
  • Government entities
  • Healthcare providers
  • Property owners
  • Product manufacturers and distributors
  • Service providers
